Kinokuniya Honten Enoshima Monaka

Kinokuniya Honten Enoshima Monaka

Kinokuniya Honten is a store located at the entrance to Enoshima Shrine on Enoshima Nakamise-dori. It is famous for its specialty “Meoto Manju”.

The “Enoshima Monaka” is a cute shell-shaped monaka. There are many varieties, such as turban shell, hamaguri (clam), and scallop.

The filling of the monaka varies depending on the shape of the shell: the turban shell has a koshi-an filling, the hamaguri has a grains-an filling, and the scallop has a sesame-an filling.

For those who prefer to walk around and eat Enoshima monaka, we also recommend “iced monaka,” which is Enoshima monaka with an ice cream filling.

If you are walking around Enoshima in the summer, it is a good idea to try the iced monaka.

Enoshima Maruyaki Takosenbei

Enoshima Maruyaki Takosenbei

Enoshima is famous for its Takosenbei, or octopus crackers.

There are several shops that sell octopus crackers, but one of the most popular is Asahi Honten’s “Enoshima Maruyaki Tako Senbei”.

These rice crackers are made using a dynamic method in which the whole octopus is compressed.

The thinly baked octopus crackers are so light and crispy that you can eat as many as you like.

Each bite is filled with the taste of octopus.

It is a perfect souvenir because it lasts a long time.
